A former Department of Justice prosecutor, now heading a public-interest watchdog group, filed a RICO-related civil lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton and their lucrative family foundation. The lawsuit filed on March 24 before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida alleges that the Clintons and their foundation committed criminal violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
The attorney, Larry Klayman, reported that the RICO lawsuit accuses the Clintons of engaging in a criminal enterprise during the last 10 years with the goal of enriching themselves personally. Klayman and his organization Freedom Watch alleges that the Clintons — through mail and wire fraud, and various fraudulent statements — misappropriated government documents to which Klayman and Freedom Watch were lawfully entitled to receive and possess under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Specifically, the documents sought involve allegations that Hillary Clinton released Israeli war and cyber-warfare plans and practices.
Klayman’s complaint accuses then Secretary Hillary Clinton of being behind the release of documents to a reporter in order to thwart Israel’s secret military plans to preemptively attack Iranian nuclear sites to stop the Islamic nation’s march to producing atomic weapons. Another Klayman/Freedom Watch FOIA request was submitted for Mrs. Clinton’s and her underling’s records linked in any way to the “granting of waivers for persons, companies, countries and other interests to do business with Iran. In essence, they allegation is that Hillary Clinton knowingly undermined U.S. economic sanctions on the terrorist-sponsoring, nuclear-weapons-seeking nation of Iran.
Klayman alleges that these acts are the result of the Clintons and their foundation “selling government influence in exchange for bribes from interests which have donated to The Clinton Foundation.” It’s also alleged that the Clintons were paid exorbitant speaking fees and money was transferred to them by other means.
Klayman maintains that the current EmailGate scandal was basically a part of the scheme to cover up evidence of these and other related crimes by hiding emails that would incriminate the Clintons and their foundation. “This is the first and only hard-hitting case to address the growing email scandal. What Hillary Clinton, her husband, and their foundation have done is nothing new. It is simply part of a criminal enterprise which dates back at least 10 years, all designed to enrich themselves personally at the expense of the American people and our nation. It’s time, however, that they finally be held legally accountable,” said the former DOJ attorney.
This is not the first time that a reputable attorney has made allegations about the Clintons. Even Bill Clinton’s own FBI director, Louis Freeh, wrote about how Clinton let down the American people and the families of American victims of the Khobar Towers terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia during the Clinton administration. After promising to capture the Islamic terrorists responsible for the bombing at Khobar Towers — a bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds — Freeh said that Clinton refused to telephone Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to urge him to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in their custody.
Freeh writes in his book, My FBI: “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate [by allowing the FBI to investigate] and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library. That’s a fact that I am reporting.”
Freeh said he was determined to stay on as FBI director until Bill Clinton finished his term so that he could not appoint Freeh’s successor. “I was concerned about who he would put in there as FBI director because [Clinton] had expressed antipathy for the FBI, for the director. [So] I was going to stay there and make sure he couldn’t replace me,” Freeh told Mike Wallace of CBS’ 60 Minutes.
